Re: now weather, Pam's-Progress on the garden wall

Well, I'm at the bottom of the "tolerance level" for cannas. Zone 6 is "iffy" for them..and depends on where you plant them and if they are mulched heavily over the winter....AND...how bad the winter is. I've had some die out too....I just fill in those spots with those that are hardy enough to survive.

Lordy!  I can't get canna to survive in the ground here in my "balmy"
(currently about 20F) z 7 garden; they just turn into mush:-(

I think our low is heading for the teens again tonight after 70F last
weekend....survival of the fittest out there in garden land with
roller coaster weather.
